Autumn Weekend Style

 

 

 

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Autumn.  It did take longer than expected but with the temperature dropping and leaves starting to fall off trees I think it’s safe to say Autumn has arrived.  I love Autumn, it’s not too cold and it’s not too hot and I get to wear some of my favourite items of clothing this time of year.  Jeans, knits, ponchos, tunics just to name a few.

 

This outfit is simplistic but not dull, comfortable yet stylish.  You could wear this outfit to work on casual Friday’s, grocery shopping or catching up with friends.  When it gets cold you could wear a trench coat or leather jacket with it.  Dress it up with boots or strappy heels, a clutch and statement earrings.

Black jeans is one of the greatest inventions of all time.  If you don’t own a pair of black jeans this is why you should run out and buy a pair;

  1. Slimming
  2. Dirt doesn’t show on them
  3. They go with everything

 

I bought these Prima Estelle Curve Embracer skinny jeans from Jeanswest.  I’ve been buying Jeanswest jeans for quite some time now and I love how they cater for the vertically challenged like myself.  I would normally have to pay to get my jeans altered but I don’t have to with Jeanswest 7/8 jeans they are the perfect length.  There jeans hold there shape and colour wash after wash.  I love jeans I wear mine till I literally get holes in them, (my baby thighs rub together). Good quality jeans are essential.

 

 

I’m having a love affair with burgundy at the moment.  I’m buying so much burgundy I can’t get enough of it.  In the past during the cooler months I would normally stick to wearing navy, black and grey.  It can pay off to try something new because you might just end up loving it.

This side split roll neck sleeveless knit from Forever New is really affordable and versatile.  When it gets colder you can wear it on top a leather jacket, cardigan or parker with a scarf.  Black, white, navy, mustard and grey works well with this colour.

 

Now lets talk shoes.  I’m wearing the Tiffy snake skin lace up flats from Target. They are comfy and sexy well I think there sexy for flats.   You can’t buy the snakeskin online but you can buy black online.

 

 

Is this an outfit you would wear on the weekend? What colours are you loving right now?

Outfits For Spring

 

Yesterday was the first day of spring. Spring is my favourite season cause its not too cold and not too hot, the perfect balance.  When I think of spring I think of flowers, Melbourne Cup, butterflies, weddings and radiant sunshine.  It’s a busy time on the social calendar with the races, weddings, formals, birthdays (does anybody else have a lot of birthdays coming up?) or for a night out and I’ve found the perfect outfit that will make you stand out from the crowd.

I browsed three stores that I know and love to find these outfits from Myer, Review and Forever New.  Here are the outfits from Myer:

 

Watercolour Floral Bella Dress by Charlie Brown – $199

If spring was not a season but a dress it would be this dress.  The colours and floral print scream ‘spring’. I know a lot of people who prefer strapless dresses, I love the print and the style of this dress.  The bow is a cute finishing touch and ends just above the knee.  This dress is suitable to wear to the races, school formal or to a wedding.

Stripe Splice Fitted Dress by Jane Lamerton – $159

One of my very first work tops was by Jane Lamerton so, you could say we go way back. I love stripes and geometric shapes which is a trend at the moment so no surprise I love this dress.  The splash of green gives it that spring, calming feel.  You can wear this to a corporate function, christening or for a nice dinner.

Indigo Jumpsuit by Seduce – $239.95

For all the ladies who love jumpsuits this one is for you.  I love navy, I love the detail of this jumpsuit and it’s different from others I have seen before.  It’s sleek, chic and sophisticated.  You could wear this jumpsuit to a corporate function or wedding, literally anywhere as it’s versatile.

Here are my picks from Review.

Rouge Poppy Dress – $289.99

This vintage style dress is definitely one you could wear at the races.  With a beautiful floral pattern and a splash of red, what a great bright colour.  If you want to show off your curves this dress is for you.  You could wear it to just about any event.

Margarita Dress – $289.99

I love the name of this dress.  Yes it’s another navy dress but I couldn’t help myself.  This strapless dress is timeless and feminine with the lace detail and swish skirt.  Any girl going to the formal would look beautiful in this dress but you could wear it to any special event.

Catalina Dress – $279.99

This is the last floral dress I promise but it is spring after all.  Navy and white is such a classic combination and adding the little green detail is just divine. This dress isn’t as formal so you could probably get more wear out of it as you can dress it up or down.

The below dresses are from Forever New – If you hate colour and prefer black the next two dresses are for you.

Phillipa V-neck Lace Swing Dress – $159.99

I’ve added a couple of black dresses because black is a classic, an old favourite for some but essential for any woman’s wardrobe.  I love a v neckline and I can’t go past lace I love it.  It is similar to the Margarita dress but it has a small sleeve.  You have so many options of what colour shoes you can wear with black which makes life just that little bit easier.

Avery Cross Front High-Low Maxi Dress  – $99.99

For those of you who have beautiful long legs (I’m so jealous and I hate you ) this dress is for you.  I like this style of dress.  I like the sheer bottom, the belt that adds some class and gives you a more defined waistline and the v neckline. This dress was made to attend a party and with you in it.

If you purchase any of the above, I would love to see a picture of you wearing it, just tag notsopeachie #notsopeachie.

So readers, do you love spring? Do you have a lot of events on in the next three months? Do you love bright colours and floral print as much as I do?
